House And Boy At Amsterdam Avenue And West 116th Street, NY 1898

Unidentified house on the Northeast corner of Amsterdam Avenue and West 116th Street, in Harlem, New York, November 8, 1898, by Harlem photographer James Reuel Smith.

The Wells & Springs that ran throughout Harlem, the Bronx and the entire area are connected to the “Indian Springs” and wells that Harlem World Magazine wrote about a few years ago. Smith’s photographs document this transition between “Indian Springs” and the industrial revolution of mass production bringing water to homes throughout the area.

James Reuel Smith, spent much of the years from 1897 to 1901 bicycling around Harlem taking photographing what Wells & Springs remained at the end of the century.
